    The audio guys didn't have to hang their cable, he let them slide just running above the grid in this area...

    You are lucky. Was doing a simple move a light in a grid one time... no big deal, just a few lights... that ended up right over the food shelves instead of over the aisles... in a shop in Jamaica... the inspector came in..saw me moving the lights, told the owner he was not passing it to reopen the shop until I had fixed all the wiring for the cat5 and audio cables in the ceiling that were run loose... turned a few hours into a few days...
    dont know if he did that to help me make money or to hurt me...
